The main thing I got out of this movie is that Gerard Butler’s Mike Banning likes to stab people. A lot.
London Has Fallen is a sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen and features Mike Banning (Butler) saving President Asher (Aaron Eckhart) from yet another terrorist attack. Lots of nonsensical action ensues and we have our movie.
Now that we have finished looking back at 2015, it’s time to look ahead to 2016. Looking at the big name titles coming out next year, I see a lot of sequels. For better or worse, this list reflects that. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. I can’t help that they are making sequels that excite me. Obviously, we don’t know about all the movies coming out next year yet. For example, we usually don’t learn about movies that are awards contenders until shortly before their releases next fall/winter. Though they were in limited release in 2015, The Revenant and The Hateful 8 have yet to be released where I live, so they qualify for this list. Do they make the list? Keep reading to find out.
